Description

This Chuncho chocolate is made from a tiny Peruvian bean packed full of cacao butter, making the chocolate deliciously creamy with very little astringency. A great variety for a slightly higher cacao content bar.

The Chuncho cacaos that can be found in Cusco, Junín and Ayacucho, are not a homogenous group, rather a range of different varieties. The cacao pods are small and so are the beans.

Years ago, this Urusayhua rare genetic varietal was on the edge of extinction due to growing numbers of abandoned farms. Thanks to support from craft chocolate makers, farmers saved these trees from being lost forever, and now more than 90 families are actively growing this uniquely flavoured bean.

Cocoa Retreat

Oenone Thomas crafts her micro-batch single origin craft chocolate, from bean to bar in Penshurst, Kent. "I sort, roast, crack and winnow, stone-grind and conch the tastiest beans, creating cacao liquor that is blended with organic cane sugar and the best supporting ingredients.

Chocolate bars are made in small batches, poured, moulded and wrapped by hand for guaranteed quality and attention to detail."

Oenone works to keep the supply chain as short, transparent and traceable as possible, buying her beans through specialist cacao sourcers Cacao Latitudes. Packaging is minimal, recyclable, biodegradable and compostable, with the see-through packaging reflecting cacao retreat's transparent approach to sourcing.
